Schildknecht AG: Radio Data System DATAEAGLE
As early as 1993, we began with the development of the radio data system DATAEAGLE. This system for radio transmission is modular and now consists of about 40 types of equipment and family lines. Here we About enable wireless transmission of field bus systems such as Profibus and Profint, Profisafe, Modbus, CAN and Ethernet. These wireless systems are used in automation technology with different radio technologies and frequencies.
The radio data system DATAEAGLE operates independently of the type of radio technologies used such as WLAN, Bluetooth, DECT, Zigbee or LoRa and the radio frequencies used. The radio transmission means DATAEAGLE allows the integration of mobile machinery and equipment over radio. The peculiarity is that DATAEAGLE already performs a pre-processing for cyclic fieldbuses in radio. This solutions is patented by Schildknecht and results in a 100% reliable transmission path with no down times of the machines.
DATAEAGLE 2000 simply just for I/Os.
DATAEAGLE 3000 behaves like a Profibus cable.
DATAEAGLE 4000 is optimized for Profinet device series.
DATAEAGLE 6000 supports CAN bus.
DATAEAGLE 7000 the cellular based M2M solution.
From the PLC point of view the radio transmission path behaves just like a cable. Since many years safety applications such as emergency stop via a radio link using PROFIsafe are functioning raliably due to the high availability of the radio transmission.
Our goal is to create a system for data transmission to provide you with DATAEAGLE having the highest possible availability of the transmission path – just like a cable. With Wireless Profibus via DATAEAGLE the wireless solution is a technology alternative to slip rings, trailing cables and optical data transmission systems. The wireless connection via radio with DATAEAGLE is reliable and safe.
In other variants of the family DATAEAGLE more interfaces are implemented that are required for appropriate control technologies.
